Customizable swipes are rolling out on the Gmail app for iOS

Here's how you can use Gmail's swipe gestures.

You can decide if you want to mark a message as read, movie it to a folder or delete it outright, among other options. This could come in handy when you have loads of emails to sort out.

Along with that, it will now also have an option allowing users to snooze the notifications for a message through either 3D Touch or a long press.

Google says the feature will rollout to all iOS users over the next 15 days - so don't stress if you don't see the new feature right away.

Google free email service, Gmail for iOS has been updated with customisable swipe actions. Before now, the menu was limited to a couple of options, which of course, did not help much. It is worth adding that swiping for each email is present in Gmail's iOS app but swiping either left or right will show you the same function.

In addition to using the customized swipes on emails, users will also be able to use gestures on pushed notifications.
